This vinyl sided Italianate beauty has some cool, creative, vinyl carpentry details.
Yes, the decorative corbels are cool, but check out the inside corner: The wide, corner board is nothing more than a length of bellyband turned sideways and placed vertically (instead of horizontally).
A pretty cool way to spice up a siding job.
